Tiger Woods Workout Is Not What You Think

Tiger Woods workout is supposedly this "hush-hush" secret nobody knows about, but everybody is dying to find out. Tiger is human like every other golfer and realizes the importance of conditioning for golf. He brought a new meaning to the word golf as a "sport".

Tiger Woods workout has been rumored to be grueling and highly intensive. I was on a golf forum and even heard someone say Tiger Woods bench presses 300 pounds. I almost fell out of my chair.

For Tiger to put his rotator cuffs, chest and shoulder muscles at risk by bench pressing 300 pounds is a bit extreme. I can confidently say Tiger does not do heavy bench presses. They do no benefit to the golf swing, and put the shoulder complex at a very high risk of injury.

On the other hand, Tiger Woods workout is definitely with weights and most likely progressing to more weights per exercise. All you have to do is look at Tigers physique and you can tell he has gotten bigger and bigger.

But the six million dollar question is, "what is Tiger Woods workout"? "What does he do to produce the results he's getting on the course"?

Have been a strength and conditioning expert for the better part of 20 years now, I can tell you he's doing many exercises incorporating balance, stability, coordination, power and flexibility.

As fast as Tiger swings the club, he realizes he needs to keep his core strength and flexibility at a very high level, and most likely incorporates dynamic strength exercises with weighted medicine balls, exercise tubing, balance boards and free weights (most likely dumbbells).

The


rumors that are going around are quite comical. I even heard one that says he is 3 percent bodyfat. That is unbelievable! There is no way he is even under 10 percent. You need to realize that a bodyfat percentage at 3 percent is what professional body builders have during peak competition. That's with veins sticking out all over their body's and skin that is paper thin on top of the muscle.

The search for Tiger Woods workout should end right here!

Take that time in starting you're very own golf fitness workout, incorporating core rotational strength and flexibility; balance; stability; dynamic sequencing of motion with resistance and ultimately power.

There are many "so-called" golf fitness books, dvds and products out there. Be aware! Anything that shows pictures of a golfer sitting in a machine in a gym is NOT golf specific fitness!

The golf swing is a very dynamic movement that's done "on your feet". Most of your exercises should be done this way. Not sitting in a machine isolating one muscle group at a time.

What I want you to do now, is stop the search and start your program. Let the mystery continue of Tiger Woods workout.
